I went with my boyfriend for a long weekend away. This hotel was perfect. It was clean and cool! The location was just a few blocks away from San Marco Square so it wasn't too noisy but also was close to walk to and then go back to the hotel to cool off. It got a bit crazy Saturday night... More

We arrived at the Ca Del Dose in the early afternoon after a long flight from Phoenix. We took the boat to the nearest drop off point closest to the hotel and while we were not expecting to walk the length we did, we loved it and considered it to be a fun surprise that allowed us to travel over...

I made the reservation for this hotel solely on the recommendations of Trip Advisor reviews and Rick Steves. I knew this was not going to be a four star hotel, and I was prepared for the three bridges, possible steps up to the room, the relatively unattended front desk, pay-per-hour Wi-Fi, a small bathroom, and modest sleeping quarters. What I... More

My wife and I primarily spend our vacations out and about exploring and visiting local sites so our sole purpose for hotels is to find somewhere safe, clean, and comfortable where we can sleep and shower in our own private room and bathroom. We look for basic no frills places to stay that are centrally located and affordable. Ca del... More

Perhaps my expectations were a bit high, but for about 150 Euro per night, I think we deserved more. Yes, the location was good, but be prepared to haul your suitcases over not one but THREE sets of steps that go over the bridges between where the vaporetti drop you off and the street where the hotel is located.

Hi, I'm sorry but Venice has more than 400 bridges, is a tough town, but I do not think it's the fault of the hotel. His room was on the third floor, if you said me that you had a big luggage,I could give you a room on the first floor or ground floor. In Venice there are no lifts,... More

Good location away from the crowds but easy to get to the best bits of the city. OK a small room but overall a good stay.

In Venice, everything is expensive--it is an island! The young couple who run Ca d'el Dose work hard to give guests an economic hide away right near the action. It was quiet, steps away from the waterfront and tiny steps from a magical little square with church and locals, plus next door to a yummy trattoria. Can't ask for much... More

I stayed in a triple room which is actually around the corner from the hotel. There were two rooms on the first floor -one with a single bed, tv, closet, chair, mirror, and one room with a double bed, bathroom,fridge that didn't seem to work and breakfast area on a table. I must say, the location was great. Right by... More

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
